Gmail is redesigning its interface: everything you need to know


Alphabet Inc’s Google has rolled out a set of changes to its Gmail interface design. It includes a Material You design, which the tech giant announced earlier this year. The restructured design includes a sidebar on the left of the Gmail interface, allowing users to switch between chat, spaces, mail, and meetings easily.

Users will also receive bubble notifications for the latest chat and space messages. These notifications will be visible at the bottom left of the user interface. For now, users have the option to switch to the old Gmail layout.

The updated version of Gmail’s layout design has a new built-in layout for the platform which was announced in January this year. By manually moving the side panel, users can also show or hide menus on Gmail.

In the new layout, users can also access individual or group chat messages from the chat box. To get this access, Gmail support explained these steps as follows: “To open the chat in a small pop-up window at the bottom of your screen, go to the top of any chat or next to the chat message in the panel sidebar and click Open in pop-up window. The window remains visible when you switch to other tabs, such as Mail or Spaces.”

However, Google mentioned earlier that users should switch to the new version of Gmail’s restructured interface, but users have the option to choose the previous interface.

To turn off the new view, Gmail Support follows these steps: “At the top right, click Settings. Under ‘Quick Settings’, click Return to original Gmail view. In the new window, click Reload .”

Meanwhile, Google also changed the logo of Google Play Store on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of Google Play Store. As a gift to loyal users, the tech giant offered Play Points and Play Credits for purchasing apps. Users must enable point rewards to get better deals on their purchases. The rewards notifications came three days later, after the search engine celebrated its 10th anniversary in the Google Play Store.
